Nailla, a kindergartner at the Cullen Byrant Elementary School on 60th and Cedar Avenue, was allegedly snatched from the school around 8:50 a.m. by a woman claiming to be her mother.
The Philadelphia School District released a statement saying that the school didn't realize the girl was missing until the girl's mother, Latifah Abdur-Rashid, came to pick her up.
Nailla's family told NBC10 that surveillance video shows that a woman who appeared to be pregnant, wearing Muslim garb and going by the name "Tiffany" told school officials that she needed to take her daughter to breakfast. Then "Tiffany" signed Nailla out of school and walked away with her, according to the family.
"In the surveillance camera that the school has that I watched, she's dressed in traditional over-garment and Niqab," said Abdur-Rashid. "She has her face covered and only her eyes showing. She's wearing gloves. She's wearing all black. She has something white on her arm and she has a long black umbrella. The surveillance camera shows them walking through the hallway to get to the door. The next camera picks up and she's putting her umbrella up. Then they disappear."
1. Don't give any child to a person wearing a nailla or anything covering their face. Make them expose
their face. Maybe every person signing out a child should be carefully photographed showing their whole face. If they don't like it...go where they fit in and their ways accepted. We need to change our laws.
